It’s still only April, but summer camps are already filling up for the 2021 summer season. It could be pent up demand, but whatever it is, now is the time to be signing up for camps that mostly get started in June.

A few camps are already completely sold out. Others have sold out some of their sessions, which probably means that the rest are likely to go pretty soon. Fortunately, there are quite a few camps from which to choose. You have a good chance to get something of you move along. Choices range from outdoor adventures with Great Basin Naturalists to art-centered camps at the Nevada Museum of Art. A few summer camps offer sessions on a daily basis, so if you miss the initial registration, you still have chances to get your kids into some great summer camp experiences.

Learn about available summer camp opportunities from “Summer Camps and Recreation for Reno / Tahoe Kids.”

Earth Day celebrations are still not back from the coronavirus crisis. The annual Reno Earth Day celebration has been scrubbed for 2021, along with Truckee Meadows Earth Day and Tahoe Truckee Earth Day.

The last event standing is at South Lake Tahoe, which is now designated South Tahoe Earth Week. Earth Day will be celebrated with daily activities from April 19 through 25, 2021. More information is available from my Earth Day article.

Late season snowfall has prompted some Lake Tahoe ski resorts to announce that they are going to stay open a bit longer for the 2020 – 2021 ski season.

Kirkwood has extended its closing date to April 11. Northstar California and Heavenly are slated to shut down on April 18. Mt. Rose has not announced a closing date, but they usually hang in there till the end of April if the snow holds out.

A tentative closing date of April 11 has been announced by Sierra-at-Tahoe, Homewood and Diamond Peak. Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows is looking at May 31 as a shut down date.
